Hi all, Well this is a real turn out for the books, I've been commissioned to build another Airfix RN Sea King HU5, by another member on the forum and he has agreed that it should go up as a WIP. So the bits that I was sent for the build. Decals are from the new Xtradecal sheet, they look rather good but it's a shame that they didn't provide some of the stencils. Bits will be liberated from the Revell kit to make up some of the RN specific Fit out, Large radome, Orange crop boxes, etc,etc. I'm not detailing up the interior as my previous build but the cockpit will get a few extras, no crew this time as this will be on the ground. I've got a few things to prep yet before I get started on this and once done I'll get cracking with the build. This one will be Rescue 27 so I'll be on the hunt for more ref pictures, lucky that I saved all the others from my own build. So chaps, stay tuned Regards Dan
Finally finished - my Su-27IB conversion - combining the front end of an Italeri Su-34 mated to the back end of a Heller Su-27UB trainer to make the prototype Su-34.... (exactly what Sukhoi did! - grafting a new front end onto a Su-27UB) The WIP is here...... I wanted to make my 'Platypus' as it was displayed to the leaders of the CIS countries near Minsk, Belorussia in 1992.... fully tooled up with a full load of dummy weapons... Note the differences to the final production Su-34 - no fat tailboom, single main wheels, taller fins and metal radome. Underside view showing weapons..... I was trying to replicate this configuration as seen during the presentation to CIS leaders at Machulischi, near Minsk, Belarus..... This is what I ended up with..... Decals are from the stash - as are some of the weapons.... A few more images - including build photos - here. Ken
